Dear St. Anne Parents,


I can now confirm that our school WILL be hosting a Vaccination Clinic THIS SATURDAY, January 22. The clinic will be to vaccinate children 5-11 years old AS WELL AS for people who are ready for their booster. I will have the link to sign up for either the vaccination or the booster sent out to everyone tomorrow. We will hold the clinic in the school cafeteria this time, NOT in Moriarty Hall. Parents can enter the cafeteria using the middle set of doors of the school in the school yard. We have over 85% of all of our students vaccinated at this time, and we hope to have that number be closer to 100% after this vaccination clinic on Saturday. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you.

One last thought....I want to thank all of you for all your thoughtful and conscientious effort you have put forth through this latest surge of the virus. Our school continues to lead the other schools by having a low number of cases. Thank you very much......as we say "...St. Anne parents...simply THE BEST!"

SUMMER SCHOOL THIS YEAR....

We have so many surveys attached to this newsletter, I am not attaching one more. I wanted to let you know, however, that we are ready to offer a four week in-person summer program for students entering Kindergarten through incoming sixth grade this summer. The dates of the program would be June 13 - July 8. I need to get an approximate number of students who would be interested in coming to the program BEFORE we continue with the planning. The day would be, as before, 8:00 - 1:00 for academics or 8:00 - 6:00 for full day students which would include arts, sports, games, in the afternoon session. Rather than add one more survey to this newsletter, I will be sending out the survey at the end of the week to find out how many families are interested. Watch for it!

donation, your child will come to the library to pick out a grade level book from

our birthday cart which has a great variety of new books. If your child doesn’t

see a book he/she likes, please let us know the name of the book they’d like so

we can order it. A book plate with your child’s name and birthday date will be

placed in the book for all current and future students to see! Your child will not

only be the first one to borrow the book, but it will be on display for all to see

and check out!


If you would like your child to be part of this special club, please fill out the form
